a musician's birthday!

A girl named Ginger that I used to work with at the Contemporary Art Museum Cafe wanted to do something special for her friend's birthday. She is a musician and her favorite color was green. I decided to make some elegant musical cupcakes.

Chocolate chocolate chunk
Vanilla Buttercream
Green fondant music notes.
Silver food shimmer.

I am totally in love with these roses. And the shimmer just makes them look extra special!
